KATHMANDU, Nov 6: The training sessions for the Nepali national cricket team that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic are scheduled to resume after eight months.

The training will take place from the fourth week of November. This happens after the National Sports Council gave permission to the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) in this regard.

CAN was at work to resume the training sessions right after the Chhath festival, said CAN President Chatur Bahadur Chand. Following this, the association has directed more than 24 players, who are currently staying in and outside the Kathmandu Valley, to prepare for the training.

The technical committee will decide the participation of players in the sessions. Swab samples of all players will be tested for the infection before the training, he said, adding that during the sessions, players and coaches will stay at hotels or guest houses if need be.

CAN's plan to resume the training sessions from August 17 had been halted due to the infection risks.
